InsSciDE at "Italy and NATO: a historical reassessment" Conference in Padua

InsSciDE’s David Burigana, Leader of WP8 on Space, and Simone Turchetti, Case Study Author and Expert in WP7 on Environment, participate in a multidisciplinary conference on ’Italy and Nato: a historical reassessment’, 8-9 April 2019 in Padua, Italy.

Hosted by Università degli Studi di Padova and its Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies (SPGI), the conference ’Italy and NATO: a historical reassessment’ will explore novel analyses of Italy and its role within NATO, looking at impacts and influences running bilaterally between them.

Prof. David Burigana will discuss NATO aeronautical programs in Italian foreign policy, and Prof. Simone Turchetti will consider the question: ’A demanding ally? Italy’s contribution to NATO’s scientific cooperation’ as part of the session NATO and techno-scientific cooperation.

"Bringing together Italian and foreign colleagues, with the participation of the NATO Public Division, and through the participation of military and diplomats as witnesses and actors, we would like to provide, in addition to the academic review of the evolution of the Alliance and its effects on the domestic level in the various political-diplomatic, military, economic-industrial and technological-scientific aspects, some food for thought on the present and the future of NATO."
